Our Attitude to International Organisations

Our Attitude to International Organisations

On Thursday a Special General Meeting will discuss our affiliation to the World Federation of Democratic Youth.

Formed after the war, W.F.D.Y. took peace as its main plank.

Aiming at, but not achieving as yet, complete representation of youth opinion the world over, W.F.D.Y. stands in a position of jeopardy comparable to that of United Nations. Each year advice of withdrawals are received by W.F.D.Y. headquarters in Paris. Each withdrawal brings the complaint of Communist domination one step nearer realisation.

When world organisations are crumbling all around, UNO, W.F.T.U., we should stay in W.F.D.Y., change its policy to one that suits us, and use its organisation for the aims of peace and human betterment.
